As part of patient management, massage is often recommended as a conjunctive to Chiropractic treatment, either before or after an adjustment. The combination of these treatments often produce more effective and faster results for the patient.
Remedial Massage/Myotherapy can be performed as preparation for a Chiropractic adjustment because it relieves the muscle tension that may be pulling joints out of alignment and consequently makes it easier for the Chiropractor to adjust.
By releasing muscles and restricted fascia that has been aggravated by structural problems, Massage therapy can compliment the healing process by making it easier for you to exercise and stretch, often allowing the patient to reduce pain and increase their range of motion a lot faster.
